She just won a Novice Competition.
This is her SP. She reminds me of little Mao.

Oh! She's fast! Good edges too! And her jumps look big for her height. I am reminded of Mao when she won Jr Worlds. Her jumps look very clean too! That's very exciting Thumbs up!

I hope she keeps improving!

Wakaba won the challenge cup on the novice level. Here are the videos (without sound, unfortunately) :

She lands a 2a-3t! And this is someone who won't even be old enough to compete in juniors next year.

Beautiful jumps, especially the height: usually, when these girls are so young, they have small and UR triples, but she jumps really high (compared to Lipnitskaya or Miyahara), she will debut in the JGP (hoping that she's injury-free) in two seasons, right? She could really be the next Japan star, but let's wait...

Wub she's cute-good jumps and SS too. When is she old enough for JGP?

I think she'll be age eligible for junior in 2014-2015 season.

Wow, very impressive! She seems very well-rounded and she doesn't have that junior scrawny look to her. I mean, she's small, but she looks more powerful than previous phenoms around the same age. Her height is very good and I love her speed. Plus, she attempts all the triples already!
